are still without a plan that was originally envisioned. arizona border's technology development remains in question. according to the jo, the department does not have the information necessary to support the estimated $1.5 billion plan, which is the successor to the council's multibillion-dollar fbi net. the department has not demonstrated the effectiveness in deploying surveillance technology. the jo also found that $1.5 billion cost estimate may not be reliable. if this new plan goes awry, the department will have spent over two billion dollars in an attempt to develop technology with little more to show them cancel programs and canceled checks the contractors. this is but one example why the department must go through this acquisition system, to improve how it does its job analysis and make sure we have a better way of purchasing technology. the new administration has made some improvement, the newly created accountability and risk- management designed to manage the oversight acquisition program appears to be a step in the right direction. i am concerned only 45 staff in this office

"prospect" magazine named her one of the "top ten brains of the digital future," and susan crawford served for a time as a special assistant to president obama for science, technology and innovation. right now she teaches communications law at the benjamin cardozo school of law here in new york city and is a fellow at the roosevelt institute. susan crawford, w
